Neuman's translation is presented, "In the hope of giving an idea of the music that is heard in the prosody chosen by Hölderlin...(pg 22).
Of Hölderlin's poetic form, Neuman remarks: "They are built upon precise syllabic and rhythmic schemes, inspired by poetic forms used by the ancient Greeks and later by the Romans, which e=were adapted and introdued in German poetry by Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock half a century earlier." (pg.15)
